Help me find the right Master’s Programme specialising in Oil in Germany
December 20, 2013 8:46 PM   Subscribe

Hi there, I’m in a conundrum - I hold a Bachelors Degree in Physics and I am currently searching for a Master’s Programme at a German University specialising in the management of Oil resources and/or the relation to Oil and Physics that I studied.

My problem is that I’m having a hard time distinguishing which programmes are Climate Science oriented and which of them are related to my B.A in Physics.

I am trying to find the right programme that would enable me to hopefully be employed in a job that has to do with the sale or management of Oil resources (more to do with Oil, than say, Geology or Climate Science)

My main issue is that I’m not sure which degrees will enable me to attain this kind of a position.

I would be extremely grateful if you could help spare a few minutes of your time to help me out!

Thanks in advance

I'm not sure if this is helpful, but my stepson got his doctorate in law (I believe it was focused on corporate law), he then spent about 10 years working for the CIA as an analyst specializing in the Russian oil business, he recently left that position to perform the same function for a major oil company. In addition to the law degree he spent significant time studying language and spent time in Europe/Russia.

This is a German database with all study programs available at German universities.

It returns two programs that might fit your criteria:

Master of Science - Petroleum Engineering at the TU Clausthal. TU Clausthal is known for having close relations with the industry.

Executive Master programme in Basin and Petroleum System Dynamics at the Jacobs University in Bremen. Jacobs University is one of the few private universities in Germany that offer more than just business studies.
